    Posted October 30, 2005

    Dan Brown has managed to remain a mystery, until now.

    Time magazine named Dan Brown one of one hundred most influential people of 2005. But, very few people know of Mr. Brown's pre-Da Vinci Code struggle as a pop singer/songwriter or anything else about him. Dan has managed to remain a mystery to his fans, until now. ... ... ... Biographer, Lisa Rogak offers a fact-filled discovery into Dan Brown's rise to fame. It's an entertaining, one-sitting read that holds your attention throughout. Rogak pieces together Brown's upbringing, education, relationships, dreams and efforts, beautifully. Once I sunk my teeth into this tasty morsel, it was impossible to back away. ... ... ... I admire Lisa's expert research and awesome ability to sniff out exclusive interviews with Brown's friends and associates. The fact that she found me* is amazing. Music is an important and huge chunk of Dan's essence, and I had a few treasures to offer. No one else ever bothered to ask. ... ... ... What impressed me most about Lisa's writing was how superbly she caused the pieces to flow. Each chapter strengthens the next to bring an informative look at what makes this man tick. ... ... ... OK, my opinion may be tainted since I knew Dan on a semi-personal/professional basis for a number of years, and that I had fallen for his seemingly God-given talent as a singer/songwriter, and that I have craved further facts about him for a long while but it seems to me that others whom have learned to love his novels will find this story just as intriguing as I have. ... ... ... Lisa did an excellent job of covering everything I hoped to learn. Is Dan Brown a 'right-place, right-time,' 'Cinderella,' or 'work-your-butt-off' kind of story? I've finally got my answer. Thank you, Lisa! It's a solid, honorable book. ... ... ... *Ron Wallace is founder of the Creative Musicians Coalition, an international organization with purpose to help musicians expose their music. Ron met Dan in 1991 and worked with him, on and off, for about a decade. Ron plays in Peoria.
